Ben Fulford – The IMF And The Major European And US Money Center Banks Are Insolvent – 31 October 2011

The situation in Europe is making it clear to all but the most brainwashed that something historical is taking place. What is happening is that the criminal element at the very top of the Western power structure, especially at the very top of the financial system, has been cut off from their money printing machine.

They are hoping for a tax payer bail-out that is just not going to happen. It is game over. The Rothschild banking nightmare is ending. Continue reading
